Cost and Financial Aid

We are committed to providing excellent distance learning programs at an affordable cost.

Financial aid is available to students who have been officially admitted as a degree seeking student at Lees-McRae College. Lees-McRae participates in all North Carolina state and federal financial aid programs.

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) must be submitted each year to determine eligibility for need-based grants and loans. Please file the 2018–19 FAFSA online at using your 2016 Federal Income Tax Returns and W-2s. It is in your best interest to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to import your financial information directly from the IRS. Make sure that you include the Lees-McRae school code of 002939.

Lees-McRae College also offers students the convenience of paying their semester expenses on a monthly basis as an alternative to traditional lump sum payments. This service is provided through Higher Education Services, Inc. (HES).
